I'm currently trying to get a DC camera working.
I didn't do much yet, but I still managed to get the camera probed ok.

I had some trouble with the ieee1212 rom support (1.5ZC kernel, I sent
some PR's about that). One strange thing is that the 1.30 IIDC specs
doesn't seem to follow very closely the ieee1212 standard as it is
implemented. And there were apparently a few bugs related to byte ordering
also (I'm working on i386).

Maybe I'll have more to say one day :)
(BTW, I'm always interrested in getting in touch with someone who would
be working on 1394 cameras :)
